LCS Filters are constructed using large cross-section inductors and very stable capacitors. This technique minimizes insertion loss and maximizes ruggedness. Internal parts are firmly soldered, but are spot-potted for improved reliability and stability. All joints are microscopically inspected. These filters use a circuit which provides essentially symmetrical stopband slopes, even for broadband models.

LCS Filters are available with center frequencies from 10 Mhz to 2000 Mhz, with bandwidths ranging from 3% to 80% and with up to 10 sections. Both stopband skirts will fall within 10% (in dB) of a .01 dB Chebychev finite Q design. For example, if a lossless design exhibited 70 dB attenuation, a finite loss approximation might display 67 dB and the LCS unit at least 60 dB attenuation. A typical inductor-submitted circuit is shown below:

Insertion Loss Loss vs. Frequency for LCS Filters

To determine the maximum insertion loss in the passband, the following formula is used.

Insertion Loss = (Loss Constant) x (No. of Sections + 1/2) + 0.4 Percent 3dB BW

For Bandpass Filter Series Loss Constant
LCS-1 5.5
LCS-2 6
